Statement

I am an artist, in awe of this strange planet and like many, I find myself at times wrestling with (and drawn to) the polarised nature in which humanity expresses itself.

I rarely have a particular medium in mind, or how I will communicate this expansive endeavour, and am always open to the possibilities of how each artwork should be researched and represented. One work may require collaboration, culminating in a piece of ‘Ceramic and Sound'. Another may ask for a solitary approach, then represented through ‘Photography and Word’. Each concept dictates each exploration.

At present, Sculptural form is foremost in my desire to express myself creatively. I tend to have a philosophical approach to art, in that my interests go beyond created form. In particular the Logos - the so-called divine principle of reason and judgement associated with the animus. This interest has led to a continued questioning of the ‘vessel’ as a natural object containing the intangible, and as an expression of humanity within varied cultures throughout history.

Biography

Having graduated from Edinburgh College of Art (University of Edinburgh) in July 2018, with a BA (Hons) in Sculpture I recieved the 2018 SSA New Graduate Award and the Santander Travel/ Research Award.

Before ECA, I trained in Model Making, Applied Art and then obtained an HND in Silversmithing & Jewellery Design at City of Glasgow College.

I previously worked for many years as a free-lance ‘Creative Consultant’ with skills in Design, Illustration, Photography and Print, specialising in Project Management. Having worked for several years within the recording industry, I also have experience in Sound Design, as a Recording Engineer and Music Producer.

As well being asked to exhibit at the Royal Scottish Academy in 2018/19 and at the Boecho Gallery, London, I have further Gallery representation in Scotland, London and Barcelona. My recent and older work is also held in several private collections. Full details of exhibitions a other artistic achievements can be found via the downloadable CV.
